Joyce was a wonderful neighbor. I will miss her cheery hello and wave, when we met outside.

It was a privilege being able to take care of her,in the final day's. She always had a smile for us when we entered her room. She fought her battle with dignity and the sweetest spirit. A very, powerful testiment, to the type of woman that she was.

My prayers are that all these great memories give you strength, when it's needed the most.

Wtih our deepest sympathy,
Dawn and Mark
